Even though a regular car service can keep your car in tiptop condition, you still need to be especially prepared for driving in slippery conditions. Whether the slippery conditions are caused by rain, hail, snow, sleet or an oil spill, you need to be more careful than normal.
Here are some tips for making your trip safer when driving in these dangerous conditions.
- Slow down. It goes without saying that driving at speed in any slippery conditions will only add to the danger. Don’t be concerned that you are travelling at lower than normal speeds or that other vehicles around you are travelling faster. You should only drive at a speed you feel comfortable with, especially in such dangerous conditions. Even if you are driving a four-wheel-drive that is built more specifically for these conditions, lowering your speed is still a necessity.
